26 Weeks :: Nursery, Diapers, & more...

 Welcome to week 26!

This week has been good.
Much more uplifting than last week considering I can hear in my left ear again and the fact that
my cold is nearly gone.
Still stuffy though. I guess it's just the season.

I really do feel like the weeks are flying by in this pregnancy!
This past week Kevin and I signed up for THREE different baby classes, and since we signed up for 3 we received another for free. So technically FOUR classes. ;)
We might be going a little overboard, but we want to be as prepared as we can. We're both nervous about this parenting thing, so I feel good about learning what I can now.
We signed up for:
:: Baby Care ::
::  Infant Safety ::
:: Preparing for Childbirth ::
:: Infant Massage (Free) ::

Right now we're playing the waiting game on some of our nursery items (waiting to get them in the mail).  Here's the glider we ended up purchasing. I wanted something more modern, but everything is so pricey. Wow, BABIES are NOT cheap. This was the best I could find in the colors I liked for an OK price. We had a generous Target gift card given to us, so we were able to put it towards the glider.
I'll let you know how it is once we receive it. :)

 Cloth Diapers: Yep, we are going for it. 
We won't be cloth diapering when he's a newborn, but will be when he grows out of newborn diapers. I know it's going to take more work on my part, but I'm willing and ready to give it a try.

Thankfully, I have a friend who told me about a great place to order cloth diapers for a fraction of the cost. If you're interested in knowing more about that, message me and I'll email you info.

 This girl: Just had to share precious Bailey pictures. Bailey is a SNUGGLER! 
She would snuggle you till you are blue in the face if you let her. I'm not kidding. She loves to snuggle so much, that it can get annoying sometimes. ;P I do think it's sweet though when she snuggles up to my belly. I almost wonder if she knows a baby is in there. She's had 3 litters of her own so she's probably more tuned in to this mother thing than I am. :)

Thanks everyone for your encouragement and following along with us on this new journey.
The support and love means so much. 
Still can't believe I'm going to be a mommy. ;)
Cheers to 26 weeks!


  1. Found your blog via Beth and Until Only Love Remains! Love it. You seriously have the cutest baby bump. The design for your nursery is great! Love the walls!

  2. Thanks Meg for stopping by and for the sweet comment. :)

  3. Oh girl, first of all I love that dress! I LOVE birds. Second of all- Craig's list (depending I guess on where you live) is amazing. We got a TON of great stuff off Craig's list. And finally we did cloth diapers and LOVE them. You can check out this label for any cloth diaper posts.

    When we were making the decision I read a whole bunch of blogs about how different people did it to get ideas and figure out if and how it would work for us.

  4. Hey Jen! Thanks for info! It's encouraging to hear when someone loves cloth diapers! I'll def. check out that post. :)

  5. Look at you! So cute! I love the belly pics with the pup. You're almost to the third trimester! So exciting.

  6. It's awesome that you are going to use cloth diapers. Three cheers for the green in you!
